The number of children with a food allergy or food-related immune disorder has increased dramatically in the last 10 years.
The Centre for Food & Allergy Research is a collaboration of experts in children’s food allergy and food-related immune disorders. It uses the latest approaches in epidemiology, immunology, paediatrics, nutrition, gastroenterology and biostatistics to investigate factors that cause, prevent and improve food allergies.
Our mission at CFAR is to prevent future cases of food allergy, to cure existing food allergies, and to ensure that every child with food allergies can eat food safely.
